There really AREN'T any much better at that price. None that would be worth paying the extra $15-$20 for. The only ones that are worth getting above an Evo are ones that cost around 3x what it costs, but they outperform it enough to make them worth it.

Besides, a 212 Evo will pretty easily do 4.6 on a 2500K (assuming the voltage needed isn't insane). I can quite easily do 4.6 on my 2500K with my own 212 Evo in push/pull, I just keep it at 4.5 because I don't NEED anything higher (and truthfully, neither should you, unless you're running a 3 or 4-Way GPU setup). Hell, I don't even NEED 4.5, but I do it anyway because I can on relatively low voltage and temps.

Any significant increase in gaming and windows performance at 4.5 Ghz?

Honestly, not really. 10-15 FPS (at most), but when you're already well over 60 in most cases at stock, it's really just for show.

As I alluded to in my post above, I OC because I CAN, not because I NEED to.

The GPU is WAY more important for gaming.

Windows performance depends on what you're doing, but if you're not doing a lot of CPU intensive things, it's not even noticeable.

Here are other alternatives to the hyper 212 EVO
1.Corsair a50
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Prod [...] 6835181012

2.XIGMATEK Dark Knight II SD1283 Night Hawk Edition
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

both these cooler are slightly better than CM hyper 212 EVO

But If size is not an issue for you than I would personally recommend this one
3.MASTER V6 GT RR-V6GT-22PK-R1 120mm DynaLoop CPU Cooler w/ Universal bracket & Dual Fan
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Prod [...] 103089#top

check out the performance of the CM V6

It's able to match the performance of the thermaltake Frio(costs 63 dollars) which is an awesome cooler and a much more expernsive cooler nearly 25 dollars more than the three coolers I have mentioned above
